Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Preview

Getafe vs Atletico Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Coliseum Alfonso Perez

Date: 12th May 2018

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

This game could go the way of Getafe judging by how surprising results are coming in at this time of the season.

For Atletico, the priority now is the Europa League final as Barcelona have won the La Liga and they are not interested in a scrap for second place with Real Madrid.

Atleti play Olympique Marseille in Lyon just four days after this game so Diego Simeone would be wise to keep his star men fresh for the European final.

While Atleti still get results in the games that matter, they have won just 3 of their last 9 games, and their shock 2-0 loss at home to Espanyol last time out was their first home loss at the Wanda Metropolitano.

In Getafe’s last game, they had no fewer than six men suspended yet they were able to win on the road.

Their physical style of play should worry Atletico as they cannot afford to lose their key men to injury in this game.

The host also has a Europa League spot to play for so they would go all out to get the win in this game.

Getafe have collected 15 points from their last five league games, and they have the third best defensive record in the division having conceded just 0.89 goals per game and 0.67 per home game this season.
